RISE courses involve students in conducting research or artistic work under the mentorship of a faculty member.

International Experience

Courses involve travel and learning outside the United States as well as guided reflection on the cross-cultural elements of the experience.

Service Learning Courses

Learning environments that engage students in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and through which students reflect on the service activity.

Experiential Learning Courses

Community-based professional practice activities lead to the acquisition, production, integration, or application of knowledge; to increased problem-solving capabilities and decision-making skills; to enhanced communication skills; and to professional growth in and increased knowledge of the field of practice.

Featured Stories

Teaching a RISE course in the area of experiential learning provided an opportunity for me to provide real-world experiences for my students that they would not typically receive from an instructor-given project. Students received a greater sense of what it means to be a professional in the field beyond the skills of video production. Students gained greater skills in communication, adaptation, and civic mindedness as they worked with various clients and within a community center.
